Hospitalist Program

SLMA has a growing hospitalist program to support our primary care and specialty provider in Houma and Morgan City. Our hospitalists provide 24/7 treatment and are readily available to discuss care and treatment with patients and their families. Our hospitalists are a doctors of medicine (usually an internist), who specializes in caring for you while you are in the hospital.

A hospitalist acts as the primary doctor while a patient is in the hospital, and is in frequent contact with primary care physicians – whether the admission is planned or an emergency.
